I've used emacs on Windows 10 for a year. Recently, my "box" cursor in emacs has become a thin vertical line.
I have tried setting the variable "cursor-type", but this no longer seems to have any effect.
I have found a short comment that emacs might be detecting assistive technology (like speech recognition) and using a system cursor. See here. I've tried turning off speech recognition in Windows, but that doesn't seem to fix the cursor in emacs.
Is there a way to force emacs to use a box cursor instead of a Windows native cursor? (If this is indeed my problem.)
